I almost creamed a few mailboxes while trying to stop. I got the car back in with no damage. Just thought you guys would like a good laugh.
LOL

Actually,My father started the company back in 1979 up on Long Island and he is the presedent of the company. I am the vise presedent of the company and we work as partners now. He is getting close to retirement age now so he has been backing out slowly and enjoying himself a little. He wont ever fully retire because he loves what he does. My brother has moved into my old position when i moved up. He now helps keep the CNC's up and running and helps keep production moving. within the past 6 or so years, our company has about tripled in size when we decided to offer precision sheetmetal fabrication,government certified welding,painting,and centerless grinding to our list of capabilities. We have always been a precision machine shop, but the work we were getting required more.
The BMI area of the company was started by me about 5 years ago. It was something i did on the side for fun to start and as it grew i saw that i needed to incorperate it into the companies workload in order to keep up with the demand. Now that things have finally smoothed out and we were able to expand the company to accomodate all of our customers, It is all starting to work again as 1 company.

There was a pic taken of adrians car from this past weekends race. I will find it and post it in a few minutes

Surely you should just send me one to test in a Canadian racing environment against other pan cars?


No?


I had to ask.

jason and adrian thanks for all your help this past weekend. I learned a lot about the car and it was awesome the whole day. I will say that it was my first time using the prizm tires and running that small of a tire was a different experience when a chunk gets taken out with 2 or 3 minutes to go but it was a blast and i cant wait for the birds

thanks guys

that 10r is sure looking good, but is it going to be a road racer as well, not just oval?

Does it matter where I put the ball studs for the steering links on the servo saver? in the front or in the back?
